One of my favorite bands is breaking up...
From The Elms web site:
"It is with equal parts gratitude and humility with which I write you today to say that this July, after ten extraordinary years of life lived closely together, the members of The Elms will very amicably part ways and end our tenure as a rock and roll band. There are no salacious discrepancies between band members to report to you, and no dramatic elements to run through the rumor mill! Simply stated, the time has come to move on."

They are offering a new collection of rare recordings and live tracks at this site as well.
A sad day.
